Recent Manuel Antonio reviews

  • It was amazing

    "I loved the villa and the staff who were incredibly accommodating. The chef made delicious meals, the place was very clean and well kept. The house itself is stunning with a view of the ocean and the jungle. Monkeys, sloths and birds were everywhere. We had 12 people in our group and everyone was comfortable. I would totally return there at any opportunity. Jeff (manager? -concierge? ) was helpful, informative and easily reached."

  • Pure heaven on earth! Pura Vida!

    "I'm not sure where to start, I have nothing but great things to say about our experience at Casa Tranquilidad! Amy was amazing, from booking the house, to arranging excursions, booking (and changing) ground transportation to our needs, etc. Amy and the staff are 100% full service and made us feel so welcome. We were tired and frustrated from our travels, but arrival at the house helped the stress melt away immediately. The house itself is in great condition, beautiful, and clean. We absolutely loved having so much fresh air breeze through the house. So many places to nap, relax, read, and cuddle with my hubby. The "cool" tub, the pool and the backyard are my favorite! We truly felt like we were alone in the jungle... except for the adorable sloth on the tree in the back yard, the white faced monkeys that paid us a visit, and the various Tucans that stopped to say hello. Casa Tranquilidad will now be our go-to destination when we need to get away from the rat-race of the city!"

  • Quiet Respite from the Busy Beach

    "My family of five (three kids-12-10- and 6) rented this place after Christmas for five nights. In advance of our stay, working with Lenore was a dream. She had given me lots of information and was so easy to work with. They are not kidding when they say you need an AWD vehicle. The drive up and down took about 20 minutes each way and you had to drive through a creek and over some rocks. It was worth it when you got up there, though. The beaches can be crowded and filled with people but coming home to relax in the pool at the end of the day is lovely. Please do note that you have to make sure you have everything you need for the day in the car when you leave. Going back up and down the mountain is not easy and was a bit hard on our car. One thing, we were sad that you could not get a good sunset over the ocean from the property but the views of the sunrise were spectacular and the perfect way to start the day with your coffee or tea. You can just head to the beach to see the sunset there on your way back up to the house at the end of the day. As for our lovely hosts, Zoltan and Wendy, I cannot say enough about their kindness and willingness to help you in any way. They are so kind and go out of their way to make sure they are not obtrusive on your stay but available if you need them for anything. The property itself is probably the best-maintained property I've ever stayed in using VRBO/HomeAway. The beds are very comfortable and linens are good quality. Zoltan is very proud of his residence and the work he has put into it to maintain sustainability. Overall, I would say this was a terrific value. At first, we thought we might be a bit too far away from the beach for our liking but we very quickly realized this was the best possible place to be to relax and unwind in the quiet."

  • Amazing views, spectacular condo!

    "This is an amazing property. The first thing to mention is the stunning ocean views from the family room and each of the three bedrooms. The location will never disappoint. The condo was well equipped and the owners Kerwin and Lisa were very responsive when setting up the reservations and answered all questions. There is a local manager Willy who will help with arranging any tours you want to enjoy, such as fishing etc. We caught fish one day (4 Spanish Mackerel) and brought it to a local restaurant (La Luna) for their preparation. They made ceviche with it and also grilled the rest. It was the best meal we had there. Just amazing and La Luna has a great location with views. There was plenty of fish left which we prepared in the condo for tacos the next evening. We had a party of eight and the condo was plenty big for us all. The only problem we had was water pressure at times, but whenever we reported it, it was fixed after a few minutes. I would easily stay here again as it is one of the most beautiful locations for a hotel I ever stayed at. Oh and concerning wildlife, we saw a couple monkeys and sloths near the hotel and during our 5 minute walk downhill to the local beach. It was a great little beach, but the water wasn't too clear for snorkeling, although I saw some fish near the rocks, but as mentioned clarity is lacking there. Take a trip 30 mins south to Dominical and head inland to the Nauyaca waterfalls. You can hike in or take horseback. It is worth it. Horseback ride is only $70 US per person and includes a breakfast and lunch midway in both directions. Horses were very nice and well kept. We didn't see too much wildlife on that trip, but if you head into Manuel Antonio State Park, you will see plenty there. We saw 3 monkey types, a coati, iquanas, peccary, vine snake and pesky raccoons that will snatch your food from your bags right next to you. This time of year (with locals on vacation too) the park is very busy and be prepared to be around some crowds. This place will not disappoint! Last comment, the restaurant at the hotel is good, but is a bit pricey. Better options are out and about nearby concerning pricing."
